Robert N. Lawson, 90, of Shickshinny, passed away on Monday, August 30, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family.  Born in Linden, NJ on December 24, 1930, he was the youngest of 16 children born to Albert and Lorena (Smith) Lawson.

Robert proudly served in the US Navy for six years.  He worked as a truck driver for WakeFern (Shop-Rite) for many years before he retired and moved to Pennsylvania in 1994.  He continued to follow his favorite sports team, the New York Yankees.  He also enjoyed golf and hunting with his family, as well as his trips to the casino.  Robert always enjoyed the simple things in life.  90 years was just not enough.  He will be missed by many.
